Fishing

My parents used to drag us up to Minnesota to this fishing camp outside Park Rapids, where I would be bored as hell for a week or two (except for their impressive stash of comic books). Right now, though, databases are frying my brain, and I could see the appeal of sitting in a boat on a lake, staring at the horizon and listening to the loons. I would not, however, bait the hook. Actually catching a fish would take all the fun out of it.

Not to worry. Your wife is pretty good at baiting the hook. Now that you mention it.............she is pretty good at catching a speckled trout or a redfish.

My objection isn't to baiting the hook as much as it is to getting a bite. If I'm out there looking to get away from my to do list, why would I want a bite, which just starts a whole bunch of new to dos?
